seafood allergy
Hi, I suddenly became allergic to penicillin when I was prescribed an antibiotic recently. This has now given me quite a fright and I am afraid that I might also have developed an allergy to shellfish. If I eat prawns and I do have a reaction would taking Allergex tablets help?

Yes, depending on the severity of your allergy it may help. The best howeber is to avoid the allergen - seafood in this case.
I recommend having a food allergy test done
